  • My girlfriend and I went here on a Saturday and was the perfect date. if you're looking for something fun to do that's outdoors that's very inexpensive and not around big crowds this was a perfect idea. We had a photo contest where we both took as many photos as we can and submitted them to our friends to see who had the best photo. A perfect date!
  • What an AMAZING place to visit. Such beautiful, trees, plants and flowers to see in a very large grounds. Has also got an historic old home to tour. So much to see here that it would take more than a day. Different things are in bloom year round. They hold a lot of events here like movies nights. It's a must see for relaxation and being one with the Earth and all its Glory
  • A magnificent area to visit, the grounds were well kept, even though some areas were in the works. Plenty of places to sit, with great shade to enjoy. The large variety of plants was truly enjoyable to see. They really need to fix the loose wires and lighting on the dock over the lake. My daughter could easily play with them if I wasn't paying attention, and I was.
  • What a beautiful garden! There is so much to see here and a diverse selection of plants. The large trees create plenty of shade as you walk through the vast grounds. I could easily spend a whole day enjoying the scenery.
  • I’ve been here for many events over the years and it just keeps getting better. I keep missing the butterfly events but am hoping to see it next year. I loved the LEGO displays really cool. Very well maintained property.
